Civic Empowerment lecture at Florida International University

E-mail from FIU instructor:
"Patrick, thanks again for your lecture on civic empowerment. One student was so excited to learn what you were discussing that she seriously said something to the effect that 'I am so happy that he was the guest speaker and I learned so much about how to effectively start a non-profit. I really think this will help me in my career.' She was so impressed and it was really a compliment to you. After you left, I told them more of your accolades (I thought you would have mentioned more of them) because I want them to know you are for real and not just out of a book. I think they saw that what you've accomplished is achievable - a true gift. You made a difference with my class and it is much appreciated."
